Tameka Raymond is determined to keep the memory of her son alive. The mother of five took to her Twitter page on Sunday (July 21) to commemorate the one year anniversary of Kile Glover Jr.’s death. Tameka wrote a heartfelt tribute that read:


“On this day July 21st, exactly one year ago.. my life was forever changed. My son Kile Ishmael earned his wings… His purpose here was served. As his Mother that is Still nearly impossible to accept but as a Christian I know it to be so. Kile was so spiritually synchronized with me that it was always eerie. I have repurposed my life, what was once important now pales in comparison to what I have been left to do. He is with me where ever I go and the decisions I make I think of him and his brothers. Kile was my soul mate and 11 year old self. I miss you son but vow to do everything you aspired to do. I love you ‘Kile Money’ rest peacefully my son.”

Raymond has been doing a lot to keep the memory of Kile alive. The stylist recently celebrated the summer finale of Kile’s World, which featured several kids putting on a spectacular show for audience members. Tameka has also worked to ensure that tragedies like the one that devastated her and do not happen again with the Kile Glover Boat Education Law. Under the law, children under 13-years-old must wear a life jacket while out on the lake and individuals born after 1997 must take an educational course before operating a moving vessel on small bodies of water.

Kile Glover Jr. died of heart failure on July 21, 2012 after suffering serious injuries while riding in an inflatable raft on Lake Lanier. He was one of two children between Tameka and Kile Glover Sr.
